£t is one of the. most remarkable bonks which has been published in any country. In language ii 
pie decorous an i respc rtful, and in ternis of fatherly kindness, it reveals to the young of both 
fund of information, 'chiefly inaccessible in any reliable form, and for want of which, many have been 
prompted to resort to sources either of questionable authority or immoral tendency. The work is v i 
by one of our oldest and must experienced medical men, who lias devoted a long life to the study of 
Physiology. The work was examined in manuscript by competent judges, and pronounced to be as 
unexceptionable as any work which has appeared in the English language. It breathes, moreover, a

This Book is destined to produce a Physiological Revolution in thi 
mense sale, because it concerns us all, both male and female. 

The Editor of the " Evening Traveller," Boston, uses the following strong language in noticing it : — 
«' The Physiology of Marriage. — By an old Physician, lomo, 259 pages. John P. Jewett & Co. A 
book that should be rea<i. by every man and woman in the land— married or anmanied. It treats of 
topics of vital interest, but of which not one in a thousand know? anything; who, in consequence of 
thoughtless ignorance, more than wilful sinfulness, violate the laws of health, and even life : bring upon 
themselves suffering and woe, and upon their offspring enfebled constitutions, disease ana early death. 
These topics are of a delicate and difficult character, and for this reason good men who were capable of 
treating them have avoided them. But every reader of ' The Physiology of Marriage,' unless utterly 
perverted in his tastes and imagination, will admit, on reading these pages, that the 'old physician' has 
dealt with these important topics as an aged father would be likely to do when addressing a beloved 
child. His instructions and counsels are so plain that none need mistake them, while there is nothing in 
them to minister to a perverted and prurient taste."

Incorporated, 1812. The American Anti-

collecting and preserving the materials of his- 
6or-y, ei a ■:. c rper;iaUy of .■■/- rican History, was 
incorporated by the Legislature of Massachu- 
setts in 1812. 

Isaiah Thomas, toe distinguished Printer and 
Publisher, and author cf^' ; The History of 
Printing in America/'' was the first President, 
and has been the greatest benefactor of this 
institution. A brick edifice for the Library 
and Cabinet, erected at Ins expense, was com- 
pleted in 1820. His private collection of 
books, which was a very considerable one, be- 
eame the basis of the Library. Extensive ad- 
ditions were made to the building after hi-* 
death, from resources provided by his will ; 
and, the principal portion of the funds of the 
Society, now am mnting to more than $28,000, 
resulted from his bequests. " 

in A pril, 1 S 5 3, the collections were removed 
t:> a new building, erected on land presented 
by Hon. Stephen Salisbury, who l! • contri- 
buted j?5,00U to the cost of the edifice, the 
whole expense of which was about $»18,Q'uG. 

The L'brary of the Society now exee lis 
23,000 volumes. Its cabinet contains nv,v.\y ar- 
ticles of curiosity and interest ; and its manu- 
scripts, coins, &c, are of considerable value. 

Two volumes of Transactions, and a catalogue 
of the Library, have been published ; and a 
third volume of Transactions is in preparation 
for the press Part I having been printed. 

There are two meetings of the Society in 
the year; one at 'Worcester, on the 2] si i}?.y 
of October, in commemoration of the discov- 
ery of America by Columbus, the other in 
Boston, on the last Wednesday of April. 
There are also monthly meetings o( the Coun- 
cil at Worcester. 

A fund of $5,000 has recently been es- 
tablished by Hon. Stephen Salisbury, the in- 
come of which is to be employed for binding 
books and pamphlets.

This institution originated in a conviction 
that the interests of Congregationalism, and 
of Christianity in general, would be advanced 
by collecting into one accessible place v h . 
printed or manuscript memorials of the .> 
England Fathers are yet extant, and also such 
documents of the present age as will be of 
historical value in the ages to come. It \ as 
organized in Boston on the 12th of JAhmary, 
1 351. The enterprise, however, was conducted 
on a comparatiaely small scale, till, by z re- 
organization in Ma}'. 1853, its privileges were 
extended to the whole body of Evangelical 
Congregationalists throughout the continent, 
and their co-operation invited.

The operations of this Society, as reported

Paring the year the following 36 new pub- 
lications have been stereotyped in English, 
German, Spanish, Dutch, Danish, and Swe- 
dish, of which 11 are volumes; making the 
whole number of publications now on the So- 
ciety's list 1,948, of which 408 are volumes of 
larger or smaller size. Besides these, the 
Committee have approved to be issued at for- 
eign stations, 87 publications, including 20 vol- 
umes; making the whole number now ap- 
proved for publication abroad, 2,972, of which
